Ach I Hope their wee arms and legs arenít really sore today, poor wee craters!

Anyway, DK can you tell me what the difference in a 3G pitch and a Ďschoolí 3G pitch is please? Or are you just using the word Ďschoolí for dramatic effect because you have a problem with these surfaces yourself?

All the coverage and promo of the game, plus comments on the quality and speed of play are very positive reading & viewing from what I can make out.

Great move Antrim County Board. Forward thinking group of people.

Uppa saffs

If can't recognise that playing a senior club championship game on a school pitch sums up the infrastructure embarrassment we have in the county, well there is little point in trying, your brain dead mate.

Still waiting on your definition of School 3G and ordinary 3G 'Mate'

Not being from the hurling side of the house, but again to highlight the basic issues within the county Kevin Parke is due to referee one of the Intermediate Semi Finals tomorrow and his own club sits in the other semi final? Seen this back in the football 1/4 finals also.... putting the lad in a situation that could blow up in his face.. or maybe we just dont have them MR2 ?

I take it you and Stillwater have looked at the fixtures for senior hurling?

Congrats MR2 does this mean that the Senior Final is yours? That doesn't make it right mo chara it just means that the committee doesn't have the refs with enough experience or numbers  .. Totes I'm sure has a plan with big Anto, what happened to Owen Elliott, Duffy Kelly ? Kelly and Duffy reffd both codes did they not..

I take it you havenít watched many games this year or the past 3 years? Iím not engaging on this subject while we have championship. Iíll certainly chat about it afterwards, itís not fair on clubs or players to have a ref discussing these matters, nor is it fair to slinging mud at officials
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

MR2, you did a game I was at once, and I was very very disappointed you looked nothing like your picture...  ;)

I take it you haven’t watched many games this year or the past 3 years? I’m not engaging on this subject while we have championship. I’ll certainly chat about it afterwards, it’s not fair on clubs or players to have a ref discussing these matters, nor is it fair to slinging mud at officials

Fair enough MR2 and I genuinely hope your in the Hat for the SHC Final, I have watched many games this year including some of yours,  I'm not slinging mud I know those officials a long time back in the days when they played and things haven't changed much to be fair. Good luck over the weekend have a goodn.

Good Luck MR2. The most difficult and selfless job in the Gaa is serving your club as referee. The vast majority of us havent got the courage or selflessness to do it, so those who do deserve nothing but praise for keeping our games flowing.

yes, I agree, well done and good luck to all the referees and officials at the weekend games, i hope you all get what you deserve...  ;)

BS, praise indeed for referees keeping the games happening, you're stretching it a bit far by saying they keep them flowing; the rules are such that they insist on dictatorial enforcement by the referee these days, where context of the game and live play, incidental contact and common sense are unduly overruled by the assessors box ticking exercise to get a good performance score...

Unfortunately, too much is expected for the referee to make a good game of it; 30 other men are on the pitch.

The players and coaches mostly seem to be the ones that cause the problems, which fuel the fans discontent, and fan the gobsh1tes into overdrive. If the players play good honest ball and curb the off the ball nonsense, the game quality and flow would improve; so, its mostly up to the teams to improve the games, not the referees.

Shouldnt allow this day to pass without giving a huge shout out to our men of 69, who won Antrims only grade a football All Ireland title by defeating Roscommon. I was seven at the time but can clearly recall listening to the match on the radio, probably thinking this was normal!

Fair play to Andy for pulling this reunion together, I hope you have a fantastic night. And lets hope its not another 50!

County chairman has now spoke out about it which is a good thing.
The chairman spoke well on the matter and was manly about it.
Cassidy has some neck complaining about OUR county but sure he has his big pay cheque to comfort him. There has never been less Cargin players representing Antrim than since he came to Cargin. Go and work for YOUR county Cassidy as you are doing nothing for OURs >:(

Who urinated on your pastie bap?
Its a pastie wrap these days!  ;D
It just doesn't sit well with me when a hired hand from another county takes to twitter to lambast our county chairman who seems to me from his work at st enda's and the county to be a hard working volunteer - he admitted it was a mistake and has given his word it won't happen again - Cassidy is just trying to whip up the bad feeling against the county in Cargin for his own ends - its all about him

Sitting here having lunch reading the Irish News on line and looks like Cassidy has put a dent in your rant. Was thinking of taking a scoot up to see this game. Heard last years was a classic.

Portglenone penalty last kick of game to draw. Sounded exciting.

Smashing game - LD will be kicking themselves - not sure whether they eased up or PG1 were really good at the end
Wonder where the replay will be !
